    It is indeed the Niederburg in Manderscheid. The pic was taken from the path from Manderscheid to the Oberburg. I thought about using one from the Oberburg but the ones I had taken from there are all after the mist had crept in so that'd have been almost impossible without any hints.

    No reply for 2 days, it's time for a little hint, the place is linked to kissing.

    A forested river valley with a small historic town, somewhat hilly, looks German enough. I can't really narrow it down any further, the island would make it easier to find on google maps but I'm not going to search every small river valley in Central Europe for it. Your hint doesn't ring a bell with me.

    You assumptions are almost correct but it's not a small river valley

    Well, the small river valley includes the modest beginnings of larger rivers as well. This is Hannoversch Münden, my first guess of larger German rivers turned out to be right and it shows up on the second row when searching for Weser on google images.

    This is correct And to my first hint it comes from the inscription of the Weserstein (Weserstone) and I had to learn it at primary school:
    Wo Werra sich und Fulda küssen
    Sie ihre Namen büssen müssen

    (literally: Where Werra and Fulda kiss, they have to leave their name)
    Btw the picture was taken from the Weserliedanlage an observation point (the photographer of the photo you found must have been at the same spot as me). and the Weser is already quite large from the start on

    Your turn again.

    It's not artificial, but it is the result of a specific natural phenomenon. Guess what it is, and the answer should be easy to find. (I might add that I don't think there are any other clues in the pic to look for.)

    Then it`s Crater Lake in Oregon, a Caldera. The Island is called Wizard Island.

    It must be the Cathedral of Fulda.

    Thanks Flinn! Personally, I wasn't aware of the Cathedral of Fulda, but it was one of the first results, when goolging "18th century German church". In the next picture, you can see a famous European religious building in the background:
